Q1. What is the best type of seeds to use & where do I get them from?
A1. The short list of seeds suitable for your kit is on the back of the box. We are sorry that we cannot supply them in the box due to state and international quarantine laws.
We recommend buying at least one type from the following three groups. We have chosen larger seeds that are easier to watch as they germinate, and that will germinate quickly, and are non toxic or edible. Seeds? Any will do - but mung and radishes are great. Parsley is REAL slow.
1) wheat or radish
2) mung beans, adzuki beans, runner beans ( or a packet of 'Sprout Mix' and separate out the different bean seed types at home)
3) cress, mustard or fenugreek.
You can buy many of the seeds from health food shops and supermarkets as most grow into edible sprouts.
Mustard and fenugreek seeds can also be bought in packets in the spices section of supermarkets. However sometimes these are processed so they will not germinate.
They are nearly all freely available in seed sections of plant nurseries. 'Sprout Mix' packets commonly include adzuki and mung beans and alfalfa. Alfalfa is fine to grow but the seeds are very tiny and hard to see.
All are available from online health food and sprout growing suppliers.
Q2. Does this kit have seeds?
A2. In Australia only, it is also currently supplied with a 'starter seed' pack. The seed pack contains mung bean and radish seeds.
It is possible seeds will be supplied with the kit in future in some other countries. This will depend on local distributor decisions in that country.
